Reflections from delegates

Winning Asia’s future, now

Covid-19, digitalisation, climate change… all these structural disruptions necessitate a new generation of talents as a force for good. This is a critical issue for Asia, home to over 4.5 billion people which also happens to be among the world’s fastest growing economies and most at-risk regions from climate change. AVPN Global Conference 2022 graciously connected us at Pijar Foundation with a diverse pool of changemakers on the same mission to close Asia’s talent gap and improve our planet’s sustainability.

Learning from failure in philanthropy

It seems like a no-brainer. Learning from failure contributes to high-quality implementation, strategic innovation and improved governance and transparency. Yet despite the fact that all funders admit this, it’s a principle that often doesn’t translate into practice. Many foundations, their staff and their boards still find it difficult to have conversations about failure. In this event, we explored some examples of best practices in learning from failure, and how they can be adapted by other organisations. Annmarie McQueen reports here…
